Ending child poverty remains an economic and moral imperative. Policy changes made during the COVID-19 pandemic caused dramatic reductions in child poverty and child food insecurity, but when the 2022 poverty and food insecurity numbers are released, we expect to see that much of these gains reversed. On Wednesday, March 1, 2023, The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution will convene leaders and experts to examine the economic impacts of child poverty and propose solutions to get back on track to a thriving American childhood. The event will feature a fireside chat between U.S. Senator Michael Bennet and Amna Nawaz of PBS NewsHour. The event coincides with the release of three essays focused on delivering in-kind nutrition benefits to children; addressing place-based poverty; and instating a fully refundable Child Tax Credit.
